This is among the best places we've ever stayed and that's saying something. After decades of trips to Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean, our stay at Los Suenos soared to the top of our list. No frills, no loud bar or disco, no casino, no BS. This is a giant package of peace and relaxation. Just eight rooms, very nice pool and when you go through the front gate, you are on the beach.
The Pacific Ocean lulls you to sleep every night and if you need company one of the resident pets (cats Eddie, BooBoo and Alice and golden lab Duke) will offer their friendship.
And the number one draw at Los Suenos -- Christine Page, the co-owner/mnanager living her dream on the beach. When we told the locals where we were staying they referred to the place as "Christine's."
This wonderful soul can guide you to a great restaurant (and there are a surprising number in this tiny town), help you set up tours and give sound advice on everything from sunscreen to transportation.
Coffee, yogurt and breakfast bars start your day at what used to be the bar then the day just gets better and better. You can trek to Zihuatajeno for shopping or sailing or just hang around the hotel grounds and beach. If you see more than a dozen people on the beach during a day, its crowded!
Warning: If you are looking for a throbbing drink-till-you-can't-see bar scene, don't go to Troncones. If you crave tranquility on a grand scale, leave tomorrow.
I will be shocked if you find Los Suenos anything but a great joy!

Right on the beach, the hotel offers guests the opportunity to relax in a comfortable family owned hotel with accommodations including a two-bedroom family suite, our six large villa (king bed) rooms, and the simple yet functional surfer room. Los Suenos is the best place in Troncones for singles, couples, families and small groups. Everyone has private space (their own suite with an outdoor sitting area) and the community areas are varied so guests can hang out together, or spread out to smaller conversation areas. The hotel is a five minute walk to several good restaurants, from tasty inexpensive Mexican to great Argentinian steak. You can walk to any bar or restaurant in town, and enjoy a great margarita or a cold cerveza, or keep beer and snacks in your room refrigerator. We have a facility kitchen and the Family Suite and the surfer room each have private kitchens.Our pool is particularly good for children and the beach in front of us is great for beginning and more experienced surfers and boogie boarders. We can arrange for manicures and pedicures, massages, surf lessons, bike rental and the like.
